Chord by Conrad Shawcross

Just popped along to visit Conrad Shawcross' rope making machine in the Kingsway Tram subway tunnel. The installation is a really beautiful piece of engineering; the weaving of rope marking the passing of time. It resonates all the more powerfully for being in a space beneath the city that has sat empty and unused since 1952.

More lovely images by McTumshie here.
